Samuel Girard playing top corner hockey

Samuel Girard scored one in Colorado's 7-3 victory over the visiting Detroit Red Wings on Friday. He registered a goal, a plus-1 rating, three shots and one block.

Fantasy Impact

The Avs were pressing and the puck was being moved around the perimeter. "Sammy G" ended up with the puck on his stick and he decided to skate off the side boards and use a 5-man screen to his advantage. He fired a tidy wrist shot into the top corner for his third of the season. He's up to fifteen points this year and is a reliable defenseman on fantasy rosters.

Two assists for Sam Girard in New York

Sam Girard recorded a pair of assists in Colorado's 7-3 victory over the Rangers on Wednesday. His stat line included two points, a plus-1 rating, two PIMs, one shot and one block.

Fantasy Impact

That's four assists for Girard in his last four games. He gets time on the power play and the Avalanche have netted 23 goals in their past four games. That obviously isn't a sustainable pace but Colorado can score and a top-4 defenseman in that system will thrive for fantasy owners. Despite his size he can still help out with hits as well. Colorado returns home to host Detroit on December 10th.
